Mod Podge Picture Frame in Five Steps!

Hi everyone! This is Sam from The Pretty Life Girls, here to share with you a simple project to change up some of those old picture frames you have around your house. You’re going to need a bottle of Mod Podge, fabric, and some other simple supplies you may already have laying around.

These DIY frames were so fun and easy to make, and they add the best little pop of color to my house.
